Whole-genome mapping for high-resolution genotyping of Pseudomonas aeruginosa

J Microbiol Methods. 2014 Nov:106:19-22. doi: 10.1016/j.mimet.2014.07.020. Epub 2014 Aug 10.


A variety of molecular typing techniques have been developed to investigate the clonal relationship among bacterial isolates, including those associated with nosocomial infections. In this study, the authors evaluated whole-genome mapping as a tool to investigate the genetic relatedness between Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, including metallo beta-lactamase-positive outbreak isolates.

Keywords: Molecular typing; Nosocomial infection; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Whole-genome mapping.
